The Message Behind Above the Standard

ABOVE THE STANDARD (an education in the art of Mr. Hauben) was a solo art show created by  Ari Hauben. Ari is a artist and Boston Public School art teacher and his show responded to the detrimental effects of the increasingly standardized and mechanized worlds of education and society.

Hauben investigated this theme through installations and artwork created from the very things we usually associate with standard education:  desks, tests, grades, etc. In addition this examination  lead the public through different styles of Hauben’s multimedia work which cover a broad spectrum of topics, styles, and materials that reflect his creative response to working “above the standards” and the positive outcome that can occur when operating outside these confines in all aspects of society.
